It's 1:36am on a work night, but I couldn't wait to do this challenge for tomorrow. Today's challenge is Heat Embossing on Dry Embossing. I used GP white cs as the base. I used the CB Script folder on GP white cs. I used my embossing buddy, then used the brayer with versa mark ink, rolled over the script embossed cs, then used white embossing powder, then heat gun to set. I used the CB to cut the nesties & emboss with GP white cs. I stamped the birdcage with SU Old olive ink, then added gold adhesive beads to the top & bottom. The panel is raised with 3D dots. My pen pal on Kotas here on SCS made me these wonderful paper flowers, so I decided to adhere these on each side. I used the MS Branch punch on SU Old Olive cs. I added medium white pearls to the centers of the flowers.

This is for the technique challenge 309 which is faux tile. I had to stop at Michaels today in order to work on this challenge. I actually like the results even though I took about 8 pictures, even switched to the BIG camera but still couldn't get the right glare.
I used SU old olive cs as the base. I stamped the image on GP white cs with black stazon, colored with SU markers. I then cut 6 pieces, used Glossy Accents over each piece after it dried for 15 min. I was able to adhere it the SU summer sun cs. I layered with SU basic black & Bazzill purple cs. The sentiment is stamped with black stazon on GP white cs again layered with the same cs. The sentiment panel is raised with 3D dots. I added 3 purple dew drops.
It's 12:15am, finished before 1:00am which is my goal lately.
I'll will be making more of these cool cards, addicting.

I can't believe it's 1:15am on a work night, got to get up in 4hrs. I wanted to make the CAS challenge tonight using flourishes on a card.
Today's CAS challenge was to use flourishes. I have to admit this is my 1st card using somewhat with flourishes. I hope the pearls count.
I used GP white cs as the base, ran it through the CB Swiss Dot folder, used the MS Lace Border punch on the bottom. I had this one piece of pearl flourishes so I adhered it directly on the white cs. I added a handmade knit flower, pink button & tied DMC floss on the button. I used the MS Branch punch on SU Old Olive cs. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon, colored the heart with a SU Pink Passion marker.

My 7yr daughter wanted to make a card with me for the Featured Stamper. It was actually her idea to use hearts rather than butterflies. She changed hers up a little by raising the solid heart with a 3D dot. She also added a mini rhinestone to the sentiment on the letter "i". I let her use my SU inks and the dp is from Basic Grey. The sentiment is stamped with black stazon.
My 6yr old daughter wanted to make a card for her little girlfriend. I let her pick out 6 dp's from Joanns today, she loves cheetah prints & cut up different shapes, layered them. She added glitter star stickers and stamped the sentiment with white pigment ink on black cs.

This is for the inspiration challenge to pick something from the Barbie website, I chose this beautiful DRESS I fell in love with the gold.
I used shimmery blue cs but flipped it over, not sure what kind of blue it is. I used the versa mark ink with Doodle This all over, then used gold embossing powder & heat gun to set directly onto the blue cs. The base of the card is the same shimmery cs which is on the inside. I added light pink adhesive rhinestones with small white & blue rhinestones. I tied a sheer teal/blue ribbon with gold wire & added a gold high heel charm.
I told my 6yr daughter that I loved this dress, she told me I didn't have the body for it....my gosh, kids say the cutest things.

WOW! Congratulations Pam for being chosen as Queen For The Day. I've always loved your gallery. I chose this pretty butterflies CARD.
I used SU Basic Black as the base. I layered with white linen cs. I used my SU Matt Stack to pierce 3 holes to add 3 mini black brads along the side. I layered with SU basic black cs, then again with the white linen cs. I used SU Summer Sun cs, ran it through the CB Swiss Dots folder. I had a piece of window sheet (I think that's what it's called), someone gave to me, cut it to size to fit the Summer Sun cs. I used Zots on each corner to adhere the window sheet, then added medium white pearls to the corners. I used the new MS Butterfly punch all over the page twice on the white and summer sun cs. I used a hand punch with tiny holes, punched 12 dots & adhered them to the butterflies. (It wasn't easy) I also added mini adhesive mini pearls for the body of the butterfly. I ran a piece of yellow dotted ribbon through a small ribbon slider, luckily the ribbon matched the card stock.
This is my 1st QFTD challenge, it was fun.

This is for the inspiration challenge, we had to choose something from Stephen Joseph Gifts site so I found this cute ladybug FRAME to make my creation. My girls want me to make more of these frames.
I chose to alter a frame. I had these $1 wooden frames I was going to make the girls so I thought this would be perfect.
I started with DCWV pink striped dp. I cut a strip of DCWV textured lime card stock. I used scissors to cut a curvy line. I stamped the stems with SU Green Galore ink directly onto the pink dp. I then stamped the flowers with versa mark ink, used white embossing powder, then heat gun to set directly onto the pink dp. I stamped a mini heart with SU real red ink, then went over it with a SU real red marker. I stamped the big lady bugs with black stazon, colored with a SU Real Red marker, then cut out. I cut the head separate then, adhered to the body. (The head is away from the body on the original stamp). I used a white Signa pen to make the white spots on the lady bugs. The only crawling lady bugs I had were going the opposite direction so I made do. I stamped the small lady bugs with black stazon directly on the dp's, colored with a SU Real Red marker & white Signa pen. I also added white dots for all the eyes of the lady bugs with the white Signa pen. I used the white Signa pen to make stitching marks around the big lady bug.
It took awhile only because I was trying to find the perfect BIG lady bug. I enjoyed making this frame, I may hang it in the girls room.
I hope this was ok for the challenge because it's not a card.

Why is that I start an idea for a card at 11:00pm when I should be sleeping on a work night? Oh well, here's my card:
I started with SU Basic Black cs as the base. I layered with GP white cs. I used the piercer to poke holes in each corner for the mini black brads. I then used the CB Dots folder on SU Real Red cs, then layered with SU Basic Black cs. I also used a strip of GP white cs, ran it through the CB Dots folder, then layered with SU Basic Black cs. I had these cute 3D stickers that were the perfect color combo, so I decided to adhere it to the GP white cs, I also layered with SU Basic Black cs. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I attached the 3D ladybug on top.
Once I adhered everything with my tacky tape, it was to late to add any ribbon.
I had everything ready to make this into a Mickey Mouse card, I just couldn't make it work.
Paper:SU Basic Black cs, SU Real Red cs, GP White cs
Accessories:3D stickers, Cuttlebug Dots folder, tacky tape, mini black brads, piercer

The color challenge was to use red, silver & white. I don't know why I had trouble with the color combo, but I finally came up with this.
The base of the card is SU Real Red cs. I layered with GP white cs, ran it through the CB Hearts folder. I used versa mark ink on the chip board letters, used silver embossing powder, then heat gun to set. I added a red button with DMC white floss. I then tied a red satin ribbon & bow. I added 2 mini silver adhesive beads to each top corner.

This is my 1st time doing the kissing technique. I have to admit that I had trouble at first, but I think I may try this again. I used GP white cs as the base. I stamped the shadow flower with SU More Mustard. I used a background stamp from Great Impressions using SU Baroque Burgundy ink. I then tied white DMC floss on the buttons, then adhered the buttons on with the hot glue gun. I used my sewing machine to stitch the stems leading up to the flowers. The sentiment is stamped with SU More Mustard.

I made this card for Alex who is an injured officer who is also a friend of Barbie50. I was browsing the forums last night and found this link that Barbie POSTED asking people to make cards.
I did this last year for my mom's 85th birthday, it's a great feeling knowing that people are willing to send cards to people they don't even know.
I cased this great CARD by Vickie Y.
I used SU Chocolate Chip cs as the base. I layered with The Paper Company Metallic Brown cs. I also used unknown teal dp, sponged with SU Chocolate Chip ink. I used the CB Textile folder on a strip of the Metallic Brown cs, layered on a piece of SU Taken With Teal cs. I wrapped 2 pieces of ribbon around the metallic cs & tied a knot. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I also added 3 gold adhesive rhinestones to the bottom. I was given these great western images from my pen pal Connie (KittyKat) on SCS, this was the perfect opportunity to use one. I colored with my primascolor pencils, mineral spirits & also sponged around the edges, then layered with SU Chocolate Chip cs.
Here's to Alex on getting better.

Congratulations to Mirasa aka whiterockmama for being Featured Stamper. I chose this punch FLOWER as my inspiration.
I made the base with SU Chocolate Chip cs. I used a medium circle punch on GP white cs, ran them through the CB Distressed Sripes folder. I used the MS deer punch on SU Chocolate cs. I used a white Signa pen to make tiny white dots for the eyes, then adhered the deer to the circles, not all the way, I wanted to make the deer stand out more. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon for the center circle.
I think this would make a perfect card for my BIL's birthday, do you think?
After gluing all the circles, I realized the middle row is further down from the top row, didn't want to start over.
